“Carlos Danger” needs some cash — and he’s only got one thing to sell.

Anthony Weiner is considering a new career in “political collectibles” — starting with the infamous crotch shot that cost him his seat in Congress.

The several-times disgraced ex-pol said that he’s stepping down as CEO of a Brooklyn countertop company — a job first revealed by The Post — and may instead start selling nonfungible tokens, or NFTs, of various lowlights from his serial-sexting addiction.

Weiner told the New York Times that the digital offerings could include the lewd photo he accidentally tweeted in 2011, a copy of the search warrant for the laptop seized by the FBI during the probe that sent him to prison in 2017 for sexting with an underage girl or the email in which Jon Stewart apologized for making jokes at his expense.

NFTs have exploded in popularity since their recent introduction, with Christie’s selling one by the digital artist known as “Beeple” for $69 million in March.

“Cashing in would be nice,” Weiner said in a report posted online Sunday.

Weiner, 56, said the move could not only let him “sell my stuff” but also “create a new category that lets people buy and sell political collectibles as a form of political fund-raising and contributing.”

Weiner — who torpedoed his political comeback by sexting under the name “Carlos Danger” while running for mayor in 2013 — vowed last year to never run for office again.

He told the Times, “I’d be really good as a campaign manager,” if not for his notoriety and said that while he’d given some mayoral candidates informal advice, “I don’t talk about which ones, because it would hurt them.”

Weiner said being forced to register as a Level 1 sex offender would make it difficult to find another job after he leaves IceStone, which he said he’s in the process of converting into a “worker-run cooperative.”

“It’s very narrow — the places that I can work without having The New York Post just make everyone’s life miserable,” he said.

Weiner said he wants to write a book about sex addiction to help others like him and has an agent shopping a proposal.

He also said he’s in a 12-step program for his addiction, but one of the rules is that — like “Fight Club” — he can’t talk about it.
